Tools for Complex Clinical Decision-Making

SHARPLeaders:  Trevor Cohen

In SHARPC-2A we are primarily concerned with the development of a cognitive support system that can assist physicians in their decision-making tasks. Specifically, we are interested in

  • Capturing, understanding and analyzing the nature and structure of expert clinician knowledge concerning commonly occurring diseases using human-intensive and semi-automated methods
  • Developing service-oriented architecture for flexible medical data retrieval, intelligent knowledge organization and presentation for efficient clinical decision-making

Related to this, we are also investigating clinical information seeking practices and alternative mechanisms for intelligent information presentation in clinical contexts.
